India vs New Zealand Live Score, 2nd Test, Day 4 Highlights: Jayant Yadav plucked four wickets early on Day 4 and R Ashwin removed Henry Nicholls to help India secure a massive 324 win in the second and final Test against New Zealand in Mumbai. Jayant removed the first four wickets in the form of Rachin Ravindra, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, and William Somerville, while Ashwin hammered the final nail in the coffin by dismissing Henry Nicholls. The efforts by the Indian spin duo saw New Zealand being bowled out on 167 and with this the hosts also clinched the two-match series 1-0. Earlier on Day 3, the Virat Kohli-led unit dominated all three sessions to put themselves in a commanding position. After posting 325 and bundling the Black Caps out for a paltry 62, the hosts set the Kiwis a mammoth target of 540 runs. They declared their second innings at 276/7 after which the visitors closed out Day 3 at 140/5.

    IND vs NZ: Shreyas Iyer - the birthday boy 

    “It was a memorable series, a great first match to remember for me (in Kanpur). I'm really proud of the way I did (bat). I'm not really thinking about it (about cementing a permanent place in the team), there are so many players who are in really good form, I hope to be more consistent going ahead. He (Rahul Dravid) has given me a lot of confidence, having started off with India A, we have gelled well, he has chipped in with ideas really happy working with me - have had great brainstorming sessions both on and off the field. Looking forward to having a great day (his birthday today).”

    IND vs NZ: The year of Axar Patel the ‘all-rounder’

    With 36 wickets and 464 runs in five Tests (including the ongoing Mumbai match) this is still the year of Axar the all-rounder. That is what Axar believes he, Jadeja and Ashwin are--all-rounders. “My batting is benefitting the team and if you see me, Jaddu and Ash bhai playing as all-rounders, it releases a bit of pressure on our batters,” Axar said after the third day’s play. Maybe it was a subtle way to camouflage the topic but there is no disputing that what Axar really does best is make Jadeja redundant at times. [Read More]

    IND vs NZ: EX-NZ pacer slams Ashwin's critics

    “Lot of people talk about Ashwin and how dominant he is at home. But there are so many bowlers around the world who have been in that exact place. Yes, his record away isn’t as good but so is the case with so many other bowlers as well. People try and find defects in numbers that suit their narrative. Why can’t we just celebrate a guy who is a great bowler?” 

    “We have all had bowlers who have dominated at home. If you look at seam bowlers in New Zealand, they have dominated at home but haven’t been as good away. It is just part and parcel of the game we play.” Simon Doull in conversation with Dinesh Karthik on Cricbuzz

    IND vs NZ: Ajaz Patel creates a new record  

    Meanwhile, Kiwi spinner Ajaz Patel, the latest sensation in Test cricket, followed up his all-10 in the first innings with four wickets in the second to finish with a 14-wicket match haul—the best bowling figures against India. The previous best was Ian Botham’s 13-wicket haul, also at the Wankhede, in the centenary Test in 1980. Patel finished with figures of 26-3-106-4 (14/225 in the match).

    IND vs NZ: What happened on Day 3? 

    India's middle-order worries going into South Africa series remained but that didn't deter Ravichandran Ashwin from turning the heat on as his three quick blows left New Zealand tottering at 140 for five in pursuit of an impossible 540 on day three of the second Test. 

    While Daryl Mitchell (60 off 92 balls) and Henry Nicholls (36 batting) added 73 runs for the fourth wicket, there is no denying that India in all likelihood will finish it early on the fourth day with Ashwin (3/27) looking menacing after every passing over.
